  • Salford CCG ‘outstanding’ healthcare locality for second year running

Established under the Health and Social Care Act 2012 as a statutory body, every GP from the city’s 45 practices is a Member of Salford CCG. 

As a CCG, we work hard to understand what is happening in Salford’s communities in order to commission the right services for the public.To do this, the vast majority of decisions about how we use the public’s money is made bythose clinicians who are closest to the people they look after – GPs and their practice staff.We work in partnership with health and social care partners (e.g. local hospitals, localauthorities, the community and voluntary sector) and our Governing Body is made up of eight representatives of general practice from across Salford along with a chief accountable officer, chief finance officer, registered nurse, secondary care specialist and three lay members.

NHS Salford Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has been rated as ‘outstanding’ for the second year running, NHS England has announced.

The CCG achieved the top rating against the CCG Assurance Framework for 2016/17. This makes Salford one of only six CCGs in the north of England to receive the highest national rating for performance, and one of 21 CCGs nationally.

The assessment was made up of an evaluation of performance against four improvement and assessment indicators:

Better Health

This looks at how the CCG and partners are contributing towards improving health and wellbeing of its population.


Better Care

This focuses on care redesign, performance of constitutional standards, and outcomes, including in important clinical areas.



Looking at how the CCG is remaining in financial balance and working collaboratively to secure good value for patients through working together to deliver new models of care.



This assesses the effectiveness of the working relationships in the local system as well as the CCGs quality of leadership, quality of plans and the governance arrangements which are in place.


Anthony Hassall, chief accountable officer for Salford CCG, said: “This is of course very positive news for Salford and for the partnership working which we have pride in delivering across the city. The key challenge now for us all will be for us to continue to make real differences for the great people of Salford who we serve and whose health and wellbeing continues to be a challenge.”

Salford Royal was given the gold standard for NHS care in March 2015 when it was rated ‘outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission. With the CCG’s rating, it makes Salford one of only two localities in the country to have a CQC-rate outstanding acute trust and an outstanding CCG.

James Sumner, Chief Officer at Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust, said: “It is great news for the whole city that Salford CCG has retained its ‘Outstanding’ status. We at Salford Royal are proud to lead the way with our CCG colleagues and other partner organisations in providing outstanding health and social care services for the people of Salford.”
